Perchlorate cleanup put in motion

SANTA CLARITA - Local water agencies are stepping up efforts to clean up
perchlorate a rocket fuel chemical left by the former Whittaker-Bermite
munitions plant from local groundwater. 

The Castaic Lake Water Agency, the region's prime water provider, has
been working to secure the required state permits and a settlement from
the defunct weapons manufacturer to contain the pollutant and to restore
municipal wells that have been sealed since 1997 due to contamination. 

Ken Petersen, engineering operations manager at CLWA, said the agency
hopes to have the technical fixes in place by the end of 2006. 

"We're putting together a plan and going through the CEQA requirements,"
he said. The agency board is slated to adopt the plan in September with
a negative declaration no adverse environmental impact under the
California Environmental Quality Act.
